wu: as part of the motion i want the entertainment commission to be part of the motion. >>: if we are talking about an independent analysis as proposed by commissioner moore, and if it's mr. saltar, it is only fair that the two i don't want to say "sides" share the cost. if it is independent it cannot be funded by one side i don't know the project sponsor is comfortable with that or not at this point. i don't want to have a series of battles between two experts. this is this, that is that. my testing method with this. the other guy says yeah but my testing method was this. i don't think the commissioner wants to get into that. >>: we are a small family business. we only have so many resources. it is hard to go against the big powerhouse like sundance. >>: if we are having an independent expert -- mr. saltar's name has been, but it could be your guy, i don't care. it could be wanted both you, kabuki, the spas, the theatre shares teh cost. >>: i agree to that. >>: the planning commission would like both parties, the building owner, the lounge to have an initially agreed-upon sound c

occurring. i am in favor of it. >>: commissioner wu. >> commissioner wu: could you address the question of the number of tables in violation? >>: since 2007 there have been three complaints filed, over the course of several years, not back to back. in each of the investigations the complaint was not valid. that is what we have to rely on, the enforcement staff responding to complaints and informing us whether or not this business is in violation or not. there was a limit -- to the number of tables. the one thing that i know makes this more challenging is that retail coffee shops, part of the definition of retail restaurant was a constraint on square footage and a constraint on the number of tables and chairs. that whole definition became a limited restaurant definition. what was in the condition of approval was reitarting what the code parameters were for restaurants at the time and even more so restricting the square footage to 350 square feet. does not have a constraint on the number of tables and chairs. >> commissioner wu: for me to concern is wanting to support the busines

be full support for the staff looking at expanding the legislation to include what commissioner wu just spoke about. but i'm uncomfortable in doing that because this has not been vetted before anyone and the community and the merchants associations and everyone else were looking at a specific application for cafe floor. but i think there's another discussion that needs to be had with the community groups about expanding it all over the upper market area. and for us to take a vote on that i don't think is appropriate. >> so, are you, commissioner sugaya, removing that portion of your -- your portion of the motion? >> no. i'm saying staff should go ahead with that. and it would go through the normal kind of public hearing and community process and the supervisors indicating interest in it, too, so. >> commissioner antonini. >> yeah, ms. hayward, maybe i can get a clarification on what commissioner sugaya is alluding to.
